INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The governor leaves on his third foreign trade mission on Saturday.

Mike Pence previewed the trip in a FedEx hanger at the airport on Wednesday. He is headed to England and the Farnborough Air Show in an effort to build on the growing aerospace industry in Indiana.

He plans to meet with more than a dozen companies and will be one of five governors in attendance.

“It not only draws these companies but also in many cases it draws the chairmen and the CEO’s of those companies into one place,” he said, “and we’re going to be able to have a number of very high level meetings and begin to build some relationships.”

Pence says that executives at GE Aviation encouraged him to attend the air show. GE recently announced plans to build a new engine factory in Lafayette. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
